About the Movie

A sergeant (Dennis Hopper), returned from Vietnam to accompany a comrade's body home for burial, is crossing America by train. Haunted by hallucinatory configurations of reality and terror, the soldier becomes involved with various passengers, actual and imagined, in this chilling film that, according to Anais Nin, "takes us deep into the heart of The American Nightmare." Dennis Hopper gives the performance of his career as the tormented, lost innocent, putting together an incredible portrait of confusion, violence and vulnerability as his American dream is shattered.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The movie has the stoned, improvised look of an artifact out of the 1960's, having less to do with considered opposition to the war than with a vague sort of dissatisfaction with everything, and no idea what to do about it. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Feb 15, 2017

Fresh: An incisive, revelatory film about a returning war veteran from Vietnam transporting the body of a friend across the US for burial. – Variety Staff, Variety, Feb 15, 2017

Fresh: The rough, improvised structure suits the inarticulacy which the movie seeks to examine. – Film4, Feb 15, 2017

Rotten: The deeper it delves into symbolism, the more incoherent and hallucinatory it becomes. – Chris Petit, Time Out, Feb 15, 2017
